Do I become a Canadian citizen when I marry a Canadian?

No. Marrying a Canadian citizen doesn’t give you citizenship.
If you want to become a Canadian citizen, you must follow the same steps as everyone else. There isn’t a special process for spouses of Canadian citizens.
You must meet several requirements to apply for citizenship. You must be physically present in Canada for at least 1,095 days during the 5 years right before the date you applied. This includes time as a
. permanent resident
. temporary resident (lawfully authorized to remain in Canada)
. protected person
Your Canadian spouse can sponsor you to become a permanent resident if you
. don’t live in Canada, or
. aren’t a permanent resident
You may apply for citizenship if you
. are a permanent resident
. have been physically present in Canada long enough
. meet the other requirements
There are different rules to determine if children of Canadians born outside Canada have Canadian citizenship.
